how to make a tree block--part two, sewing


Tree top
Sew one of the 3 inch cut EZ angles to each side of the goose. Note the position of the pieces.
Press towards tree.
(I show some with dog ears on and some with removed--you may find your piecing more accurate with one way or the other--whichever way you choose, make sure you remove the dog ears before the last step to reduce bulk.)

Lower branches
Sew one of the 2 1/2 inch EZ angles to each side of the decapitated triangle.
Press towards tree.

Sew a 2 1/2 inch square to each side.
Press towards trunk

Sew tree together. Press treetop towards lower branches, and lower branches towards trunk.
It should measure 5 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches at this point.

Next time: Sashings
